A student was filmed at Texas State University yelling at an anti-choice protester while punching and kicking the protester's signs in the center of the campus' quad.

The student, who is seen holding flowers and a balloon while walking up to the other man, and immediately sets them down and starts yelling, "Get the fuck out of here with this bullshit, man."



The protester responds by saying "we have a right to be here," after which the student quickly replies, "no you don't."

The student starts to kick over the anti-choice signs β€” black posters with large photos of a fetus and the words 'Preborn Human' written at the top β€” while yelling, "This is fucking bullshit. Get your shit out of here. Fuck."



The video was filmed by Texas State junior Emma Brockway, who told The Tab that anti-choice protesters visit the campus "constantly" by the school's Stallions, an area of the campus that is usually crowded with students. She says that she immediately began organizing a peaceful counter protest after the incident. "It’s important that the pro-choice side has a presence at the Stallions as well.”
